[Vm-dev] A simple getenv primitive

I can't find any getenv primitive that would allow me to access
environment an variable value from its name. This could be really
helpful to get the HOME directory for example. Does one such primitive
exist? If not, why? It looks trivial to implement for linux, and it is
potentially also easy on Windows and Mac OS. I'm willing to try if

Thank you
